Dr Elijah Behr is Senior Lecturer in arrhythmia at St George’s University of London and Consultant Cardiologist at St George’s Hospital, where he runs the inherited cardiac conditions service and the arrhythmia service.  He manages and treats all forms of arrhythmia and routinely undertakes simple and complex pacing including biventricular pacing and implantable cardiovertor defibrillator implantation. He also has extensive experience in ablation of simple arrhythmias such as supraventricular tachycardia, and more complex procedures such as ventricular tachycardia and atrial fibrillation using both conventional radiofrequency ablation and cryoablation including the cryoballoon tretament of atrial fibrillation.

Dr Behr’s undergraduate medical education was completed at Cambridge University and Guy’s Hospital, London. His further training in medicine and cardiology were completed at Guy’s and then St George’s Hospitals, London, sub-specialising in clinical electrophysiology. His research interest is in sudden death and its genetic, clinical, epidemiological and pathological investigation as well as drug-induced arrhythmia. He has published and presented widely on these topics, both nationally and internationally.
